Photographer Andre de Dienes gave 19-year-old Norma Jeane her first modeling job in 1945—on a five-week road trip across the southwest. One love affair and multiple magazine covers later, she reached sex-goddess status. But it was photojournalist George Barris who immortalized her in the weeks before her death in 1962 for a prospective book. Both artists’ photos—the first, last, and arguably most veracious portraits ever taken of her—are on display. Tue-Sat 10 a.m.-6 p.m.; Sun 1-5 p.m.
